UPDATE: One dead, another injured in highway shooting in Brampton

410 shooting

Police say one person has died and another suffered serious injuries after they were shot in a car this morning on a highway west of Toronto.

Peel Regional Police Const. Heather Cannon says they received a 911 call at 2:28 a.m. from someone who reported being shot.

Cannon says officers found a vehicle and two people suffering gunshot wounds on Highway 410 in Brampton, but did not confirm whether or not the victims were in the vehicle.

She said one person was pronounced dead at the scene while another was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Police have not released details about the victims.

Cannon says a short time later, Peel police officers had an ``interaction'' with a separate vehicle, which is now being investigated by the province's police watchdog.
